ActionView International, Inc. Announces Repayment of Financing Amount From Redwood Capital

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - January 16, 2008) - ActionView International, Inc. (OTCBB: AVWI) today announced it has received repayment of the full amount of the financing component that it supplied to Redwood Capital, Inc. for an acquisition transaction in which Redwood Capital acted as an advisor. Redwood Capital provides advisory services for China-based companies seeking entrance into the U.S. public markets. The acquisition transaction successfully closed on December 31, 2007.

ActionView provided the $120,000 financing component to Redwood Capital and has received full repayment of the financing amount, plus the interest that had accrued. Under the agreement between the two companies, ActionView International was also to receive, in addition to repayment of the financing amount, an equity bonus equaling two times the value of the amount of the funding in the form of common stock in the U.S. public company that acquired Redwood Capital's client. With the acquisition now closed and the financing component repaid, ActionView anticipates receiving the equity bonus from Redwood Capital within an agreed upon timeframe.

"We are pleased to have received repayment of the financing that we provided to Redwood Capital so soon after the acquisition transaction had been completed," stated Steven R. Peacock, president/chief executive officer of ActionView International. "The expected equity piece provides an additional benefit from our involvement with Redwood Capital, and we look forward to receiving it as well.

"In addition to reporting this repayment, we also want ActionView shareholders to know that we continue to make progress in the positioning of ActionView for a future merger or acquisition transaction. We expect to have additional information to release in the near term, including a potential acquisition target," Mr. Peacock added.
